I bought my KeepKey in 2016 and overall I’ve been very happy with the product. In terms of user experience and simplicity, KeepKey is hands down the best compared to the other hardware wallets I’ve tried. Their setup process is super straightforward, and all you need to do is install the chrome extension on your browser. KeepKey is great for beginners who want to take the next step toward securing their coins by taking control of their own private 🔑 . It helps you get the job done without exposing you to all the techie details that are happening behind the scenes. That comes at a tradeoff though. I recently needed to find a way to sign a message using my Bitcoin wallet so that I could get my Byteball airdrops, but KeepKey doesn’t support advanced features such as this. As a result, I decided to also buy a Trezor, which supports more advanced features, but pales in comparison to KeepKey’s user experience. The other major difference I found between KeepKey and Trezor is that KeepKey supports Ethereum natively, whereas Trezor relies on an integration with MyEtherWallet (MEW). Maybe it’s just me, but MEW is way too technical for my liking, so I really appreciate that KeepKey went the extra mile to support Ethereum natively on the device to keep the process of storing my ethers clean and easy. The reasons I deducted a ⭐️ is that they took quite a while to support Bitcoin Cash when the hard fork happened on August 1, 2017 (I think they were the slowest to roll out support compared to other hardware wallets). Also, KeepKey support was M.I.A. throughout the first half of 2017. It turns out they were in the process of being acquired by ShapeShift, but I don’t think that should excuse them from falling off the face of the planet and not responding to their customers. They definitely had me nervous for a while there, especially since I have recommended and set up many of my friends and family with KeepKey devices. At the end of the day, we all just want to make sure our coins are safe and sound. And KeepKey gets that job ✅. I continue to recommend them to my friends and family that are just starting out with digital currency!
